Did you know missionaries in Russia are called volunteers? Sister von Schlegell is currently serving in east Siberia & Russian law makes it illegal to proselyte & wear a missionary name tag in public - in spite of these difficulties they had 2 baptisms this week!
"We literally had almost every lesson/appointment that we set up fall through this week...Sister Nelson was just like alright Sister von, it's time to count our blessings. Then we just started naming everything we were thankful for: How it hasn't snowed yet, how at least our investigator keeps rescheduling, for the Elders' investigator, stray cats on the street, sweet Russian Babs, how we can at least say Hello in Russian, how we can help cute moms with strollers down the stairs, and the list goes on and on. Then we just started laughing at ourselves because like what are we even doing & life just did not seem so bad after all. Don't forget to count your blessings & laugh at yourself once in a while." #missionarymoment #sharegoodness
